Yesterday was all about traveling. We were up early to work for a little while before heading aaall the way up to Bethesda, Maryland so that we could get our car fixed. On our way, we passed the beautiful National Cathedral (which I had never seen before!)…
And then we spent the first half of the afternoon working at one of our favorite spots – Barnes & Noble. Our Honda needed some work done at the dealership, and since I remembered from a previous trip that there was a Honda right next to a B&N up in Bethesda, we packed lunch and made a day of it.
Mid-day we needed to stretch our legs and get some air, so we packed up and headed to find another good Wi-Fi spot. We ended up discovering a little gem of a tea house called Zen Tava Tava – I wish we had something like this in Old Town!
White peony tea – so light and delicious!
Our day in Bethesda was fun, but unfortunately it led to an insaaaanely long 2-hour drive home due to DC rush hour traffic. We made our way past the Cathedral again – this time as the sun was setting.
Today – as all Saturdays should be – has been all about relaxing and slowing down.
Up early to do a little working in the dark (my favorite time of morning).
Relaxing in the sunshine.
Major house cleaning.
Wearing old favorite hoodies.
Running lots of errands.
And buying things like pretty candles so that the house smells a little more like figs and flowers and a little less like dog farts.
A new workout shirt to make tomorrow’s run more exciting.
And of course, a tooth-cleaning kit for dogs.
I’m talking to YOU, stink breath.
The kit said to start by showing the toothbrush and paste to your dog. I showed it – he feared it.
But he was actually pretty cool about letting me give them a good scrub.
What, you didn’t brush your dogs teeth today? :)
And now it’s 7pm on Saturday night and I’m wearing my chewed up slippers and my pink plaid pajama pants.
And all is right with the world. Happy weekend!
